  2. Gloria'sWife

    Thanks for showing our love in such a mature loving way, it’s beautiful because it just is.

  3. jade

    Yes to putting together pics of black women in love!! I’ve been looking to find this. Thank you !!

    • Michelle

      In response to Rene,

      Your reason of thinking is precisely why some women are lesbians. But being a lesbian has nothing is simply loving women. Meaning it has nothing to do with you. Real lesbians are drawn to the same women you desire because they love femininity. They love all that a woman has to offer and that literally just means the content of their hearts desire has nothing to do with a man. That doesn’t mean we hate you…we love women. You give the implication that every lesbian is bitter over experiences with men. Allow me to introduce you to me, a women with no bitter experience that simply loves relates and is drawn to other black women. The reason in truth that black men marry other races, statistics will tell you because they prefer more docile relationships. Because there are still millions of heterosexual black women. Don’t impose why you think women love other women …instead ask for actuality. Not all lesbians come from bitter or traumatic experiences. Not all of us woke up and decided to be lesbians. Some of us were born and this is the way we were made. With a definite irrevocable way of loving. That has nothing at all to do with hate or settling or fear of rejection. We love women and that has nothing to do with men. Find a way to meand that “heartbreak” without an idiotiotic disposition.

  4. Breiel

    The images are exquisite! Some of the most loving photos I have ever seen have been of Black Women Loving Black Women! And to you, Rene: Black Women are not settling for one another! We are CHOOSING because, enough times, it is just so right! It has nothing to do with Black Men. It is just, on so man levels and in so many ways, so very right! When you understand that, it will bother you far less.

  5. silky

    I nvr seen ths type of photos..frst time I saw ths type of relation & it make me smile…thank u a lot all of u black ladies…

  6. Nai

    Love these pics, great job putting all theses beautiful photos, so inspiring.
    I’m a bit curious about photo #2, Can anyone give me a bit more information on it, any bit of information is useful for me right now.

  7. Bonita

    So Beautiful all of them

  8. Rene

    As a black man looking at this breaks my heart. I wish you women wouldn’t do this type of stuff. Lesbianism in the black community makes it very difficult for us straight black men continue to choose black women for marriage. Most of us don’t like white women but with this super increase in lesbianism we’re deciding to marry women of other races such as latinas, asians, white, indian, arabs, africans, europeans, etc. Stop your lesbianism because it’s killing us inside – it hurts me to see you women do this type of thing and calling it love. Seeing you ladies all hugged up and kissing isn’t attractive because it says you hate us; you don’t want us and you don’t need us. Which is a complete turn off for those of us black men who want to marry you, start a family with you and love and cherish you and treat you right.

    You women could look very beautiful if you just changed your attitudes towards us which is reflected in how you look and your demeanor towards us black men. We still love you ladies and nothing you do will ever change that but as you continue in your lesbianism and glorification of it you’re making it seem like all black women are into your lifestyle. Because looking from the outside in it appears that way even though it’s not true. The more you continue to settle for women by allowing your bitterness towards us black men direct your actions and thoughts the more you’re pushing us black men who would love to marry you, accept you, have children with you and treat you right towards marrying women of the races and nationalities. Stop settling for women and learn to forgive so we can create black families with you. We still love you ladies. I as a black man still love you ladies.

    • Tara G

      This is my reply to Rene: Thank you that you still love us as you claim even though you find that homosexuality (many of us women are attracted to women either lesbian or bisexual) is wrong in YOUR eyes. That is your issue not mine or anyone else’s, so please do not project your problem onto us.
      Many of us in LGBT community are happy and not living in miserable lives because we are believing in our truth and living out publicly, enjoying life like we are deserve and love. Personally I do not hate men, I have met and continue to meet and befriend gentlemen whom respect me as well as I respect them.
      Sending positive energy your way Rene, hopefully you live and love your truth (whatever it is). I, a lovely Brown skin/Black woman, whom is attracted to women/lesbian is living out in my truth and I love life. :) Oh, I suggest to you, Rene, to use this concern of yours in a more positive light, how by being supportive to the LGBT community? No matter who you are, everyone needs support! :)

    • Wow. Was that serious?

    • Monica

      Hello Rene.

      Thank you for your heart felt response. Wow!! My immediately response was “He’s can’t be serious”!! Black men are not going to stop marrying white women or women from other races because of black lesbians. Black men have taken their love away from “us” a long time ago and many of us have “moved on we are not looking back”!!

      Our society (along with the Brothers) have made black women feel unattractive, unloved, and not desirable to you. Well bump that!!! We have found love and acceptance from each other.

    • DANCER

      YOU SOUND LIKE A DAMN FOOL IF YOU SEE TRUE LOVE IT DOES MATTER WHO U LOVE, OPEN YOUR EYES AND STOP LOOKING INSIDE YOUR OWN SELFISH NEEDS.

    • sammie

      It would be a pleasure for yourself to read your very own comment before posting.It sounds really heartbreaker to hear of such stupidity.The lack of knowledge,not your belief.

    • JurZee67

      Really?! Nothing about these photos says “They hate men” maybe its a you thing. We’re not causing men to do anything but be who they are, do not blame them for your choices…the obvious word being “choice” they eere born with the desire to love women..no hate.if seeing this is detrimental to your psyche..feel free to look away..that’s a choice!

  9. Priscila

    I’m so Happy to see this! I’m a black Brazilian Girl living in Germany and I don’t know any other black lesbians here. I thought the problem was that I live in a country were most of people are white, but I was reading a post on a blog called “black and lesbian” and so many girls are saying that they don’t know black lesbian in Brazil too.
    Maybe this women in this picture are so far away but I know that they exist and that makes my day!!!!!

    Thank you!!!!!

    p.s: I’m sorry for my bad English.
